Worthing - 29 December 2011
Eyewitness reports have come in reporting the collapse of part of the decorative structure of The Royal Arcade, Worthing.
We were told that this afternoon a piece of masonry around 20cm square fell from the roof and smashed outside the front door of a hair salon.
As the images below show there are a number of pillars which have lost the same piece of masonry as fell today, considering the size of the Arcade and its age we hope that the freeholder will be carrying out a full safety inspection without delay.
At this stage all business remain unaffected and a cordon is in place around the affected area.
